GameLoft’s Blackberry 10 Games

Yesterday might’ve been the biggest day BlackBerry history. The company showed off its new top-of-the-line mobile phone, the BlackBerry Z10. The company is hoping to compete with Apple’s iPhone and what seems like the infinity amount of Android smart phones out there. One way the company plans to compete is getting off to a big start in the application store. According to BlackBerry, the store should have about 70,000 apps already available to download.

And one way to compete with the ever-growing mobile market, is to make sure that when people have spare time on their hands, they can play a video game on their smart phone. Gameloft has released 11 titles, that are already available on BlackBerry competing platforms, however these games should run as good as any other phone on the market, considering the power of the phone.

After the break, find out what games can be downloaded on Blackberry application store.

- Uno

- Shark Dash

- N.O.V.A. 3: Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance

- Oregon Trail American Settler

- Ice Age Village

- Six Guns

- Real Soccer 2013

- The Amazing Spider Man

- Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour

- The Dark Knight Rises

- Let’s Golf! 3

BlackBerry is trying to make a big splash, and bigwigs in the company have stated that they’re not trying to compete with their competitors, they’re trying to beat them. And well the phone is powerful in some respects, it’s seems like a tad underwhelming. It’s definitely a smart move on BlackBerry’s part to allow mobile gaming.

The biggest hurdle for the phone right now, is Blackberry needs to convince consumers that the phone is more than just business only, and it also can be an entertainment device.

Again, this is not going to be an easy marketing campaign. That’s mainly because the phone now isn’t differentiating itself. It doesn’t do anything better, than let’s say an Android or an iPhone

And well 70,000 applications is definitely a great way to start, that pales in comparison Apple’s App store, which has over 700,000 applications waiting to be downloaded. The ecosystem just isn’t good enough. And to ask the general public to spend the same price with an inferior amount of applications becomes a hard sell.
